Chandigarh, June 8

A local court has granted bail to a 23-year-old youth in an attempt to murder case. Kulbir Singh, a resident of Sector 38 (West), was released on bail after furnishing a bail bond of Rs 1 lakh.

The case was registered on the complaint of Pankaj, who stated that after closing his dhaba about 12 midnight on November 15, 2018, he was going to meet his brother-in-law Vimal, who is also running a dhaba in the name of Delhi Parantha Gali in Sector 22. When he reached near Paul Merchants in Sector 22, he saw occupants of three cars abusing each other. One of them started throwing stones, while another boy fired in the air. No one was injured in the incident. After firing in the air, all of them escaped from the spot in their vehicles.

After the complaint, an FIR was registered under Section 336, IPC, and the Arms Act against unknown persons.

During the course of investigation on November 25, 2018, Harmanpreet Singh, Himanshu, Ranbir, Vineet Gautam, Anirudh and Gurkirat Singh joined the investigation and they alleged on that day, two persons were having a pistol and tried to kill them. Accordingly, Section 307, IPC, was added to the FIR and the accused was arrested.

The defence counsel argued that there was no specific allegation against the accused that he had any weapon with him or he had fired the same pointing towards the complainant, whereas he was not present at the spot. Also, it was mentioned that the prosecution witnesses on whose statement the accused was arrested under Section 307, IPC, had turned hostile and did not support the prosecution case at all.

After the arguments, the court granted bail to the accused on his furnishing personal bond of Rs 1 lakh.
